Tottenham defender William Gallas has been ruled out for at least three weeks with an abductor muscle injury sustained in training on Friday.
Typically Ledley King also picked up a groin strain in the same training session, which means that Sebastien Bassong is still our only fit experienced central defender. Vedran Corluka played alongside him at West Ham on Saturday and had a nightmare. Steven Caulker has been loaned out to Bristol City for the rest of the season, so it remains to be seen who Harry will select to partner Bassong, Huddlestone perhaps?
According to the Daily Mail, Harry Redknapp doesn’t expect to have Gallas fit until after next month’s international fixtures. With a bit of luck he could be back for the Fulham match.
Redknapp said on King: ‘It’s a blow. When you don’t train, you pick up different injuries. If I went for a run tonight, I’d pull up with a calf problem because I don’t train regularly. Ledley doesn’t train and he picks up little injuries.’
